Another one of Gigabyte’s upcoming Z87 motherboards has been detailed. We have already taken a look at the Z87 Killer boards, the Z87X-OC and now this time it is the mainstream Z87X-UD4H previewed by Overclock3D. The big thing you are going to notice about this board is that Gigabyte has gone with a new black and red theme like many other motherboard manufacturers including ASUS, MSI and ASRock.
As I said the Z87X-UD4H has a nice clean look to it with its red and silver accents. It features a 16 phase VRM and is equipped with a Ultra Durable 5 features that include an IR Digital Power Design, IR Digital PWMs with IR Powerstage ICs, a 2 layer copper PCB design, and durable solid capacitors.
Expansion slots include three PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots, three PCI Express 3.0 x1 slots and a single PCI slot. Overclocking features include a debug LED, power on / off buttons, CMOS clear button, Dual BIOS and smart voltage.
As far as storage goes you have 8 SATA 3 ports and 10 USB 3.0 ports. There is also a gaming headphone amplifier for enhanced audio quality. Overclock3D has done an entire video preview which you can check out below.
